What Can We Learn By Listening Wholeheartedly?

Listening Wholeheartedly

The Power of Silence

The power of the world of silence is that it teaches us to listen. Listening wholeheartedly to another we receive not only their words, but also the world of feeling, emotion, and intention that lies beneath the words. We learn to respond to the whole of another person, not just to the words that are spoken.

Loving, receptive silence invites the confidence and trust of others. Learning to listen inwardly, we learn to pause before assuming any of our conclusions or opinions are absolute truth.
